The official website for Double Decker! Doug & Kirill, an anime series that is "one part" of the "new Tiger & Bunny animation project," began streaming two new promotional videos for the anime on Friday. The videos highlight the anime's main characters.
The site also revealed new cast members earlier this month, including: (Note: Character name romanizations for Sophie and Apple are not confirmed.)
Rikiya Koyama as Travis Murphy
Aya Endo as Sophie
Takuma Nagatsuka as Apple
The site has also revealed a story synopsis:
The city-state Risvaletta. In the shadow of this city with two suns where people go about their tranquil everyday lives, crimes and illegal drugs run rampant. Above all, a dangerous, highly-fatal drug named "Anthem" is casting a dark shadow on the streets. The "Seven-O" special criminal investigation unit, whose speciality is to supervise the investigation of Anthem, institutes a "Double Decker System" policy of forming groups of two investigators.
Doug Billingham is a veteran investigator. And now arriving at his side is Kirill Vrubel, whose true ability as an investigator is unknown. An aloof veteran detective who is hard to get a read on, and a rookie detective who is too eager and often takes actions in vain. The story of this unconventional detective duo starts now.
